Our Lady of Fatima Centennial
MN KC Blog * Written by David Whatmuff
With the 100th Anniversary of the Fatima apparitions upon us, we are anticipating many graces through Our Lady of Fatima this year. Because of this centenary year, there is much attention on the story of Fatima, especially with the anticipated visit to Fatima by Pope Francis on May 13 and the centennial tour of the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue to all 50 states, organized by the World Apostolate of Fatima USA, which came through the Twin Cities last October. Many people are hearing about Fatima for the first time, or they are recalling the story and want to know more.
We are working with the WAF/St. Paul & Minneapolis Archdiocesan Division which has available a simple Fatima program to bring us this important and timeless message of hope. The World Apostolate of Fatima USA has produced a compelling new DVD documentary, Fatima: A Message of Hope, which will be played on EWTN and at conferences around the country.
